Good location & well equipped accomodation

  • 4 of 5

Jan was very helpful both before & during our stay, there to greet us on arrival & show us around the apartment which was very spacious for us as 4 adults & 2 children. The kitchen was well equipped with even oil, salt etc. in place. Towels provided, 2 bathrooms (one ensuite) & clean bedrooms. The large balcony was lovely to sit out on (sea so close you feel you could be on an ocean liner without the movement) & perfect to watch the sun setting from. In a quiet area where you can walk along the seafront in both directions (slight detour to the right to if you don’t want to walk on the pebble beach). The pool was a little cold for us adults (I braved it twice) in November but the kids absolutely loved it & there is a shallow part (sectioned off by a rail) for the little ones as well as a small garden area with a slide & playhouse. Also plenty of free parking spaces if you have a hire car. A good base to relax & explore Madeira from.

Great apartment with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have visited the apartment and can't wait to visit again!

It is very spacious with three large bedrooms and two bathrooms, lovely dining area and sitting area and it is spotlessly clean. The kitchen is modern and has everything you need including dishwasher and freezer.

Towels for the bathrooms and the pool are provided which is very handy and the wifi is very good.

The best feature is the huge balcony with table and chairs plus sun loungers with an amazing view. It gets the sun all afternoon and you see some wonderful sunsets. We ate out on the balcony all week.

There is plenty of parking if you hire a car and the airport bus starts at the end of the block however,Yan can arrange a private transfer which is very quick and easy.

We like the location because you are straight out onto the sea front path and can walk along to Camara dos Lobos or Funchal. The no 2 bus is less than 10 minutes away and takes you into Funchal if you don't want the walk. Reception can also call taxis for you.

There are a couple of great restaurants a short walk away We would recommend the Picado (beef dish) at Beira Calhau on the Promenade Praia Formosa (towards Camara dos Lobos) and the restaurant along to the left through the tunnel that's halfway up the cliff do a fabulous range of fish.

When we were there in March 2017 the local supermarket was closed for refurb but it's not far to the one in the Forum and there are cheap taxis over the road from the shopping centre to get you home again.

Yan is really helpful and you will have a great holiday at this apartment!

Perfect stay for our family

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this ocean-side apartment. We were 5 adults from the UK and USA and this apartment was spacious and set up well for this group. The kitchen had everything we needed and any minor issues that we had were immediately addressed and resolved by our host, Jan, who was delightful to work with throughout the booking process and during our stay. His personal reception was very welcoming and made us feel right at home from the start. The pictures are quite accurate and the apartment was clean and well maintained.

Bedrooms are all spacious and suitable for two in each (a few more hangers in each wardrobe might be useful)

We enjoyed many breakfasts and early evening cocktails on the lovely balcony which was set up with good seating, tables and a couple of nice loungers. The washing machine was a nice bonus so we could travel light and do some laundry at the midpoint.

We found the location to be ideal, given that we like a quieter location - we were a little out of the main hustle and bustle of Funchal (more “local” feeling), but close enough to drive into town as needed. A few local restaurants and bars to walk to. We intended to explore the whole island so had rented a car, which was useful from this location, but bus service is very good and taxis are readily available.

Thanks again, Jan, if we return to Madeira, we would be pleased to return to your place.

Great location, lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment definitely lived up to expectations. It was clean and well equipped. The rooms were spacious. Fast wifi as well as a dishwasher and washing machine which was great as we were a group of 6 with a young child and an infant with us. The balcony was large, lovely sea views and a great view of the sunset. The sound of the breaking waves was very relaxing. We spent a few lovely afternoons by the pool which had a kids' section also. We tried to brave a swim in the sea but the sea was a bit rough that day!

The location was ideal, easy access to Estrada Monumental via a lift and a short steep walk. Buses ran regularly to Funchal centre and were cheap. A 5-10 minute walk to the supermarket in Forum shopping centre.

No lack of places to eat nearby. Our favourite was the Yacht Bar just round the corner, great place to watch the sunset with a cold beer or caipirinha, food also nice and affordable.

I could go on and on, what a great holiday!
